Providing world-leading water technologies

Pharmaceutical and Personal Care

Modern Water’s Microtox technology is available as benchtop, portable or online instrumentation that offers cost-effective acute toxicity screening of new product formulations, in-process waste streams and treated effluent from pharmaceutical and personal care product manufacturing.

Applications: 

  • Acute toxicity monitoring for:
  • Environmental risk assessment of new product formulations
  • Characterisation of in-process waste streams to prevent disruption of biological treatment
  • Treated effluent monitoring to ensure compliance with industrial pre-treatment and NPDES permit
An industrial manufacturer can utilise Microtox to ensure that its production facility is not contributing point source pollution in non-compliance of its National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit as well as municipal industrial pre-treatment programs. Microtox results are comparable to approved EPA aquatic bioassays such as ceriodaphnia, fathead minnow, and mysid shrimp.
